Hi Jody

Both the 950 and 990 came out in an ‘S’ model variation that had longer legs and I believe a taller seat. The amount of extra height varied and was tallest at the beginning of the 950 and end of the 990 production runs. Neither are common in NZ and I don’t know if the taller suspension was due to internal setup or different units.

I had the rear shock on my 950 rebuilt due to a seized dampening adjuster, the tech mentioned there was some possible adjustment in the stock shock setup but I have no idea how much of a difference it would make.
